PMID: 29459752
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-21190-7

[…] and viral factors. additional pipelines for analyzing the host splicing patterns may help us to understand the virus-host interaction and co-evolution in the future., raw reads were assembled using soapdenovo-trans with the following settings: “-k 31 –i 20 -e 3 –m 3 –l 100”. we then searched for matches against a customized virus database (described below) using the basic local alignment search […]

PMID: 27618997
DOI: 10.1038/srep28199

[…] of in silico reads using a perl script housed in the trinity software package, the reduced reads were assembled following the steps described in , using three different assemblers: trinity, soapdenovo-trans, and velvet. the consensus set of unigenes of the three different methods was used as the final representative transcriptome assembly, which resulted in 89,754 unigenes with a n50 […]

[…] ambiguous bases (ns) or more than 50 low quality bases []. transcriptome assembly from the remaining reads followed the de bruijn graph algorithm as detailed in misof et al. [] by using the software soapdenovo-trans-31 kmer version 1.01 []. furthermore, the assembly was cleaned from remaining linker/adapter and foreign contaminations, such as vector, phage or bacterial sequences by checking […]
